HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Market Drayton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Market Drayton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Market Drayton property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Market Drayton? What should we expect a Market Drayton House Survey to include?

Clay soil can create a number of issues for home owners, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and soil movement being relatively common. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property. If you

are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Damage caused by high rainfall
